The New England Patriots and New York Jets have been opponents since 1960, but Sunday's Week 2 game at MetLife Stadium will feature something this rivalry has never seen before.
Both teams will be starting a rookie quarterback against each other for the first time. Here are some other historical feats we could see Sunday, per ESPN's Rich Cimini:
The Jets selected BYU star Zach Wilson with the No. 2 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, while the Patriots took Alabama's Mac Jones at No. 15. Both quarterbacks lost their regular season debuts in Week 1 but still impressed on the stat sheet and on film.
Jones, in particular, showed great poise in the pocket and made very few mistakes against a Miami Dolphins defense that blitzed him often.
If Jones shows that same poise and throwing accuracy on Sunday, the Patriots will have a very good chance of extending their win streak over the Jets to 11 games.
